I once had a plastic mug sleeve that would turn a coffee cup into a mug, but it was not portable enough and if I lost it I would have to buy a new one! I decided to recycle an old cup and make my own. Plus, for those of you who double cup, you can use this and cut your cup consumption in half!!

Step 1: Supplies

Needed: -Paper cup from your favorite coffee shop, in your usual size.
                 -Tape
                 -Scissors

It is important that you use the right size, or it won't work right. You can make more than one and complete the set.

Step 2: Cut It Up

Cut it about a centimeter (0.3 inches) from the top. Save this part.
Cut few centimeters (inch or two) from bottom. Keep the middle section.
Keep about 3/4 of the top section.

Fold the middle section and cut along one fold.

Step 3: Rejoin Cut

Spread apart the cut you made by about 3 mm (1/4 inch) and tape it on both sides.

Step 4: The Handle

Now you have to make a handle. You may have figured this out, but the top section is the handle. fold a 1 cm (0.3 inches) on both sides and taper them to the inside of the cup so the middle is on the outside of the cup. Don't tape it on a fold, or you won't be able to put it in your pocket.

The pattern of the mouseover notes on the picture should tell you how to tape it.

Step 5: Slide It on and Enjoy!

Put this on your cup of coffee and you have magically transformed your regular paper cup into a mug! Plus it's cheap and easy to make!


(note: If you laughed at the title of this step, please grow up and get some maturity.)

Great idea.
this is sweet! I'll keep this project in mind :)<br />
Handy!&nbsp; I didn't know that there were so many Canadians on the site until now, those Tim Horton's cups are giving us away.<br />
Canada Rocks! We should stick together and only vote for things with Tim cups! I live in Nova Scotia, and we dring A&nbsp;LOT of Tim Hortons coffee! I you look at a Tims map, you can't see Nova Scotia. Tims in Halifax is like Starbucks in New York!<br />
